Stitches Report, Part II
She did a symmetrical version, which she grafted in the center. She is an engineer, after all. ;) And just take a look at that gorgeous Cromarty sweater she is wearing. Mmmmmmmmm. The day I (finally!) met her, she was wearing Inishmore with eye popping perfection in cables.
Kilroy was there too. :g:
And because I know you want to see it, more yarn prØn from Royale Hare. In the wild:
And some yummy laceweight:
I saw friends and acquaintances that I really only see once or twice a year like Jasmin, Patricia, Sandi and Chloe of Purlescence, CJ, Kathy, Cheryl, Janine, Brenda, Lisa, Sheila, Alison and Ann.
And I met people like Maia and her boothmates Kristine and Brooke, Jocelyn, Saloni, Kristi and CookieA, Vickie, Emy, and Janice. And there are others! But with the yarn fumes, I'm afraid I was in something of a fog!
I stayed with my dear friends Nathania and Kevin and their absolutely gorgeous daughter, Elinor. What a sweetie she is! Kevin is the absolute best directions-master there is. Really. He single-handedly kept me from getting totally lost down there. Because I'm sure I would still be driving around looking for Starbucks without him! And Nathania: what can I say? She is really one of the kindest, most centered and wonderful people I have ever known. I feel fortunate to call her my friend. It's a testament to the craziness of Stitches that we really didn't get to spend much time together. I hope to remedy that this summer, though! :)
And in answer to Lorraine's question about what I bought?
I am almost ashamed to say it: not a thing.
